You'd have to talk to your doctor. I know some people are told not to take it and some people are ok with it. Some think that there is a connection between lupus and hormones so taking birth control is a bad idea according to those people. Im sure it could be based on the person. I take it for acne and my rheumy is ok with it and told me to stay on birth control. Some people dont do well with it though.
